 LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- It's awards time again -- the MTV Music Video Awards, the Emmys, and the newest award this season -- the Senior "Remmy" Awards, the latest permutation of the celebrity "Remmy" award, created by the makers of Rembrandt Whitening Toothpaste, in recognition of age 50-plus celebrity smiles.
 The winners (see list next page), announced today by Noreen Freitas, executive vice president of Rembrandt Oral Care Products, were chosen by over 200 of America's top dental hygienists, voting among nominees in categories including: "senior pin-ups," "golden girls" and "smiles we miss." Winners by a landslide included Carol Burnett in the "funny folks" category and Raquel Welch in the "senior pin-ups" category.
